Dr.-Ing. Albrecht Gensior was appointed university professor at Technische Universität Ilmenau as of September 1, 2021. He heads the Group of Power Electronics and Controls in Electrical Power Engineering at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, succeeding Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Jürgen Petzoldt.
Albrecht Gensior studied electrical engineering at the Technische Universität Dresden and then worked as a research assistant at the Power Electronics Professorship at the TU Dresden.
In 2008, he completed his doctorate at TU Dresden in the field of flatness-based control for power electronic systems, where he established the independently funded research group "Modeling and Nonlinear Control of Power Electronic Systems" in 2013. The research focus of this group, funded by grants from the DFG and industrial funds, was primarily on the use of nonlinear design methods in control engineering for power electronic applications.
In 2019, he undertook a research and teaching visit to the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María in Valparaíso, Chile. Albrecht Gensior is known to the scientific community for more than 40 journal and conference papers and patent applications.
